Please let me know if I send you a postage due item! I’m happy to make it up to you. My local post office has reduced hours still:(
Welcome to my profile! I am 53 years old and live near San Francisco, California. My town is an island in the San Francisco Bay. I have also lived on another island 🌴 here in the bay.
A few of my favorite things: Handmade anything. Dabbling in drawing, doodling, some variation of zentangles, watercolor, gel plate printing, stamping, collage, acrylics, sewing, painting, coloring, knitting, and other fiber arts, beading, cooking, and more.
Penpal writing and journal writing are some of my favorite pastimes.
💜Bella Grace& Daphne’s Diary & Somerset Studio are magazines I read.
Here are some of the YouTube people I subscribe to: Maremi Smallarts, Nik the Booksmith, Mystele, Ana Bondu, Susanne Rose Art, The Paper Outpost, Creationsceecee, My Arty Heart, Lisa Oxley, Joie de fi, Gel Press, and Gelli Arts.
Postcards: I love any and all postcards. Here is a list to help make your selection easier. But really I love them all! I also specifically like handmade, collage, tourist, art, any upcycled or reused or reformed "art", illustrated, inspirational, humor, photography.
Paper: I love stationery and all kinds of paper.
Junk journals, funky scrapbooks. I'm not that coordinated nor designed. My style is eclectic and messy and Bohemian. But I love to save all kinds of little bits and pieces. Ribbons, book pages, washi tape, wrapping paper, home made paper.
Currently reading about 10 books right now. Of Blood & Bone, Tools of the Trade by Tim Ferriss, and Ignorance is Strength are a few of the titles.
What are you reading or listening to? Would you recommend a book to me? Or several? I’m open to new books right now. I finally cleared up my 2019 book list and I’m ready for new juicy reading material!!

News I've been watching all the news.
Recently added Netflix but haven’t actually watched anything yet.
My favorite new show is Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams.
Mostly now, I Walk, Dance, and do yoga.
When this is over I will swim again.
Happily many old friends are hosting free dj dance sets and we can stream sets live or download free versions at Soundcloud or many other websites I can't even keep up with. It's a happy upshot of this nightmare.
Instead of sending extras, so something extra special for yourself. Buy yourself something sweet. Do a mini spa treatment or a maxi treatment! In this time of stress and isolation be kind to yourself and I’ll feel it remotely. You can even tell me what wonderful thing or experience you had. That would really make my day. ❤️💕💜💗🍾🎂🐶💗🍒🍑
Crystals & Rocks & Precious Metals: I used to think hippies were crazy for being into these things. I didn't get it. I still do not really understand the metaphysical aspects but I just love crystals and rocks and metals.
Here are a few of my favorite crystals: Rock crystal, rutilated quartz, amazonite, tourmaline, pyrite, mica, rose quartz, celetite, serpentine, selenite, jasper, azurite, obsidian, and many more.
Artist Trading Cards or ATC and other arts and crafts creations. Recently I started really trading artist cards and that is super fun. I'm enjoying swapping these cards, other peoples' beautiful, fantastic, creations!
I can't think of a genre of music that I don't like.
I also love to listen to spoken word, plays, old radio shows.
I heard some big investor, one of the Rolling Stones maybe? Is saving the old blues recordings on 78-- from like the Mississippi delta and Louisiana-- vinyl and converting the into digital collections. I also love Gospel. I am not familiar with too many Gospel singers but I love some Gospel music, church music, Gregorian chants, ecstatic dance...Amen.
My husband and I have planted a small victory garden. We have had a garden for over 10 years. This year we planted with the intention of reducing our dependence on the grocery store. Edible flowers too. Fruits like this year a volunteer blackberry bush joined our harvest. Cucumber, kale, mache, lettuces, beets, carrots, onions, tomatoes, and peppers all varieties of peppers.
What about you? Do you grow anything? Do you have house plants? Succulents/ can you give me any advice on succulents. I kill mine-unintentionally.
